The Mediated Image

The aim of The Mediated Image is to serve as an online visual database providing insight into China’s internet culture and the defining role that image making is coming to assume within this sphere. Examining how artists are increasingly using digital media to disseminate their work to new audiences, the mediated images that appear on this website demonstrate the complexity of artistic structures within contemporary China, showing the fluidity of the opposition between the ‘official’ and the ‘unofficial’ and questioning the notion of a self-censoring, often unitary state media. Revealing instead the existence of a creative, humorous, but also socially and politically critical “China online,” which frequently locates itself outside of the intellectual discourse surrounding state censorship and contemporary art, this website explores image-making practices at the heart of modern and contemporary encounters between China and the wider world.
